I saw some mysterious promo stuff about this a while back & didn't know what to make of it, but now the full lineup's been released, so...
Apparently H-town's in for not one but two awesome-sounding summertime music fests this year (and hopefully the next, if all goes well?); along with the Free Press Summerfest, now there's the Texas Heat Music Festival, scheduled for Sat., July 4th & Sun., July 5th downtown at Jones Plaza. It's a little pricier than the Summerfest, at $15 a day or $25 for both right now (soon to go up to $20/$25 or $30/$40), and it aims a bit more at the dance-minded than Summerfest, but hey, both festivals have excellent lineups.
Here's who all's lined up for Texas Heat:
I dunno a fair number of the out-of-towners (that first eight or so), but RJD2's one of my favorite producers ever -- I like his Soul Position stuff w/Blueprint better than the vocal-less stuff, but I'll take what I can get of the guy. Plus, there's The Rapture, although for my money a full-band show'd be much cooler than a DJ set. And hell, I didn't even know People Under The Stairs were still around.
The Music Lords, it would seem, are smiling down on us all, dancefloor mavens & indie-hipsters alike...
